Grants and scholarships for study abroad
For current Lund University students
Student exchange with grants
If you want to study outside Sweden but within the Nordic countries or Europe, you can apply for a Nordplus or Erasmus grant. The grant is intended to cover extra costs you incur in conjunction with your stay abroad. In order to apply for a Nordplus or Erasmus grant, you must have been nominated for exchange studies through Lund University’s central exchange programme or through your department/faculty.
Fieldwork with grants
There are other study abroad programmes that offer generous grants, such as the Minor Field Studies (MFS) programme for fieldwork and the Crafoord Foundation.

Summer activities with grants
Lund University offers grants for students attending Universitas 21 (U21) summer activities. These activities take place at different Universitas 21 universities, in or outside of Europe:
- Learn more about U21 Global Opportunities (including the U21 Undergraduate Research Conference)
- Learn more about U21 Summer School
If you have been nominated to attend the U21 Undergraduate Research Conference, you can apply for a travel grant. In order to be nominated, you need to apply for exchange studies through Lund University’s central exchange programme – the application period is usually between 15 February–15 March.
Other programmes and networks with grants
Lund University is also a member of various different networks and programmes that aim to increase collaboration between universities in different regions, often by facilitating student exchange. If you want to study abroad, you may find it interesting to read more about these collaborations.
There may be other external scholarship opportunities for current Lund University students who wish to study abroad. Note that these scholarships are not managed by Lund University and that you cannot apply for them through the Lund University scholarship application system. Please contact the specific organisations directly if you have questions about the scholarships.
